Mitchell’s Ice Cream Brothers, Hartzler Farms, Woolf Farms and Johnnyville Slugger Dee Perry travels to W. 25th Street to talk to Pete and Mike Mitchell about the recent opening of their Mitchell's Ice Cream store in Ohio City. We also check in with a few of the shop's local suppliers and the brother's aunt. Plus, we get into the swing of baseball season with the owner of Johnnyville Slugger, a homemade baseball bat shop in Cleveland.

Additional Information

Mike and Pete Mitchell join Dee on the scene of their new ice cream shop in Ohio City and tell us about how they got their start in the business. Look for Mitchell’s Ice Cream shop at 1867 West 25th St.

Janis Hartzler of Hartzler Family Dairy, one of Mitchell’s Ice Cream’s dairy suppliers and Dale Woolf of Woolf Farms, one of the shop’s fruit suppliers, jump in to talk about their products that play a part in the well-known ice cream business.

Johnny Smatana, owner of Johnnyville Slugger, gets local baseball fans excited about his custom baseball bat service.
